There have been so many Gaelic Dictionaries, and 
compendiums of Dictionaries, already published in 
the Gaelic language, that one would be apt to 
think, that there was no need of new publications. 
I was once of that belief myself, but, after mature 
deliberation, I saw an absolute necessity of publish- 
ing one for myself, composed of pure Gaelic words 
that I might be directed by it in my own writings. 
The reasons 1 had for doing so are the follow- 
ing. I saw that the Gaelic Bible, though looked 
upon as the standard of the Gaelic language had 
many errors. 

1. It has many Irishisms; as eadhon, to wit : 
gidheadh, nevertheless; feadh, as long as ; àithne, 
commandment, (it should be fàithne ;) cutback, 
madness, (i. e. caothach.) 

2. It has a number of provincial impure and 
improper words in it : as amhluadh, confusion ; 
(i, e. aimhreit,) oilean, an island, education ; (ei- 
lean,) ocar, interest; (riadh.) 


3. It spells the same word various ways, as 
bleodhainn, bleoghainn, milk ; daingionn, dain- 
nionn, daingeann, daingean ; giuthas is five ways, 
spelled, &c. 

4. It is full of Irish expressions ; as air (no- 
iar,) leughadh an t-soisgeil, after reading the gos- 
pel, (it should be an dèigh leughaidh an t-soisgeil.) 

5. Englishisms are also often to be met with in 
prose Gaelic authors, as cuibhrigidh so na fiachan 
ud (diolaidh na pàidhidh so na fiachan ud. ) 

The Dictionaries copied from the Bible, have 
the same errors. And in Gaelic authors, no im- 
provements can be expected, unless they throw a- 
side the Bible, and take their expressions as I have 
done, from the mouth of the best Gaelic speakers. 
To remedy, as much as possible, these blunders is 
my design in this Gaelic Dictionary, at least with 
regard to the propriety of words and fixibility of 

That I might proceed with greater ease, exact- 
ness, and punctuality in this, 1 provided myself 
with a Dictionary, which is looked upon as one of 
the best, published by the Rev, Dr Norman Mac- 
leod, and the Rev. Dr Daniel Dewar. This Dic- 
tionary answered indeed the end intended by its 
authors by giving all the dialects of the Gaelic, and 
more copiously mine, together with the various 
ways of orthography in each of them. Seeing this, 
my task was to select and choose my own dialect, 
with its proper and uniform orthography. In or- 
der to succeed in this, I read the dictionary over 
and over again with great attention, marking at 
the same time, all the words of my own pure dia- 
lect, leaving out provincial terms. Their ortho- 


graphy also was attended to, and rendered uniform. 
The number of provincials left out are very few, 
and made up for, by other words not to be found in 
in Macleod's Dictionary. Besides some improve- 
ments are made, and several amendments and cor- 
rections. Although this study of the Dictionary, 
be attended with much labour, still I have no rea- 
son to regret the pains and trouble I took, because 
its advantages are very great. It brought to my 
mind many words that were almost obliterated iu 
my mind — it taught me the meaning of words more 
perfectly — it discovered their etymology — it pointed 
out their orthography — and what was most useful 
of all, it laid down the foundation of grammar, by 
giving words with the chief variations of cases.- — 
Hence the study of Dictionaries cannot be too 
much recommended. After satisfying myself with 
the selection and orthography of words, I trans- 
cribed them all, and wrote them in this small Dic- 
tionary. It will be of service to the reader to have 
an idea of this compendium, especially in the de- 
clinable parts of speech. 

1. In nouns, the nominative singular, and the 
termination of the genitive singular or dative are 
given, with the termination also of the nominative 
plural. When no cases are marked, the noun is 
indeclinable. After the noun follows the gender, 
the English, and generally the derivative adjective, 
or a derivative noun. 

2. Adjectives when given in full, have two com- 
paratives, the first is sometimes a noun, the second 
is always so. When adjectives are not thus given 
in full, they can be easily formed, from the many 
examples given. 


3. Pronouns are marked down entire, both as 
simple and compound. 

4. Verbs are conjugated nearly the same way, 
as they are in Latin. All the tenses flow from the 
root. The first part, or root, is the second person 
singular of the imperative, and stands for the root 
of the verb. The next part given is the perfect 
participle passive, and commonly made by adding 
te to the root. The 3d and last part, is the infini- 
tive. From these three all the other parts are 

5. The undeclinable parts of speech being given 
in full, require no explanation. The next thing 
to be taken notice of, may be termed the variations 
peculiar to the Gaelic language, by which its cop- 
iousness and beauty are greatly increased, These 
variations may be reduced to two heads. The one 
regards the spelling, the other the sound. The one 
that regards the spelling, allows you two ways of 
spelling properly the same identical word, as tar- 
ruing or tarraing, fianuis or fianais, ian or eun, 
àite or àit, tighearn or tighearna tuille or tuilleadh. 
These changes arise principally from that adage. 

" Caol ri caol, leathan ri leathan," 
and from poetic licence. 

With regard to variations of sound, the spell- 
ing must always correspond to the sound. For in- 
stance the proper sound of draoidh,caothaeIi,neomh, 
can never be got at as we find them in the Dic- 
tionary and bible by spelling these words druidh, 
cuthach, neamh. 

From all that I have said it is clear that my 
principal aim in this Dictionary is to make the 
spelling echo with the sound in all cases where 

uniformity is wanting, (but these cases do not 
often occur) and to fix the orthography as much 
as possible, and not give double, treple, or quad- 
ruple spellings to the same word. 

This Compendium, though it appears small is 
nearly as comprehensive as Macleod's Dictionary. 
What makes it appear small is the rejection of pro- 
vincial words and giving fewer English terms, and 
avoiding explanations, and numberless repetitions. 
Words at the end of lines printed in Italics are of 
dubious character. You may take them as pro- 
per or provincials. If at any time I happen to 
disagree with Macleod I am forced to do it by my 
own purer dialect, or other dictionaries or books.
